Not as much as I thought it would do but a boost is a boost I guess. Hope the WW bundle helps even more. Was the price drop only in America? There doesn't seem to be any jump in EU.


The bundle was launched on the 20th and EU price drop is in effect next week but dont expect it to do much. Retailers already have more say in pricing there and have already cut the price of them before this

PS3 numbers are still pretty amazing. What happened in Europe? FIFA still causes that kind of hardware boost?

Everybody down in hardware sales in USA, unless Wii and Wii U :)



Yoshi's the best of the beasts

I don't really know what Nintendo can do now. It's like they specifically chose the date for the Pricedrop/Zelda bundle to clash with GTA in an attempt screw themselves over. I think they really could have picked at better time for it. I mean it's a great deal, the console comes down in price by $50 and you get WW for free, but they did it right in the middle of GTA fever? Really?

Well you can't ask for better numbers for Wii U... nowadays some Wii U's owner are happy with a 40 WW a week. Even if it's very low.


Mre wii u fans thought the wii u would sell over 60k in us alone last week and increase even more this week putting world wide figures at closer to 80k for the week. So yeah, it was asked to do better. 


What the the hell are you talking about? No on said it would sell over 60k, at least no one rational. If you're gonna crap on the system at least do it without being as dumb as them.

Has Europe been fans of Zelda in the past?

Yes. And GTA is still alive



WiiU almost matches 3DS in NA. Kind of hard to believe tbh. European number is shocking.

Well, if they waited a couple of weeks, it would be in the middle of Pokemon fever.  Then if they waited longer, it would be in the middle of battlefield fever.  Longer than that, Call of Duty fever.

The person who is going to be interested in the Wii U is likely going to be different from the person who's interested in GTA, so it's not too big of a deal.  I think the amount the sales increased by is pretty much what should have been expected, so it worked out well.
